I will discuss examples of efforts to inspire creativity in the SFU Math 190, Mathematics for Elementary Teachers course, and in our FAN X99, Foundations of Quantitative and Analytical Reasoning course.
What were the most creative things an instructor asked you to do in a class?
How did you and the other students react to these requests? Did you enjoy doing them? What did you learn from them? Has your opinion of the activities changed between when you did them and now?
Is there something that you were never asked to do that you would have enjoyed doing?
